2019年12月14日托福独立口语题目：When visiting the museum, do you prefer to go by yourself or go with a bunch of friends?
I think I would like to go to the museum with my friends because I can exchange my ideas with my friends, talking about the feelings for the expositions. It is more fun. Besides, my friends can take a lot of cool pics of me. I don’t have to take the selfie all the time. For example, once I went to an exposition of Monet, a very famous painter, with my roommate. During the visit, we talked a lot of the color using and brushstrokes of Monet. It is more interesting than just seeing all these items by myself. Besides, my friends took a lot of pics that I really liked. One of them is of me standing in a painting frame, with all the special effect of light and shadow. I liked this picture very much. So, I guess to go to the museum with friends is a better experience.
I would prefer to go by myself when visiting museums, the main reason is I can better appreciate what I am visiting, without any distraction. When going by myself, no matter it is a history museum or an art museum or something else, I can hold my own pace, like I can decide what pieces of art work I don’t see, which part of exhibition I pay much attention to, how much time I spend on certain topics and so on, in this way I will feel comfortable and my visit is worthwhile. However, if going with my friends, I may have to make a compromise with my friends on how to enjoy the visit, sometimes I won’t have chances to see what Iwant to see.
